Because of the new Common Core Standards, I have found it necessary to create lessons that correlate with the new standards. I love to tie my language, writing and math together. This mini unit has language, writing and math lessons for your whole class or a small group. There are five math lessons dealing with base 10, decomposing number 10, and subtraction. I love using lots of fun manipulatives, songs and games in my lessons.
The literacy and writing section of this unit deals with making list, graphic organizers and craft activities with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. I also included a fun lesson where the students campaign to be president.
